    1. So this is the same villainous Magnus who gleefully seduced his cousin's adoptive sister out of spite and vengeance in Love According to Lily? And Annabelle, the woman he seduced, is his heroine? 👀😳Ooooh this could be interesting. Or a hot mess. lol

    2. I'll be honest, I really want to like this one. I remember Magnus from the fourth book in this series, and his encounter with Lily only made me think there was more to him than met the eye. Lo and behold, there was.The problem isis story is shit. It's two people who've missed out on 13 years of happiness merely because they're both stupid. I hate reading about this. Yes, I appreciate the whole "second chance at love" theme, but for me, it's just plain painful to read. And while it's bad enough w [...]

    3. Magnus and Annabelle fell in love. He was only a bank clerk and far beneath her and he was also the family enemy, but he lied to her. So after they'd fallen in love, Magnus knew he didn't have a future with her and had to end it. So he did it in the most cruel way possible, letting her believe he was using her to get back at her adopted brother (and his cousin) Whitby. Then, 13 years later, he comes back to beg her forgiveness and convince her that he loves her more than anything. This was a 4-s [...]

    4. I don't believe I ever remember reading about the most dormat hero yet, until now that is. A true love worth fighting for is one that is constant regardless of what others say or think. The hero Magnus repeatedly told the heroine that he wasn't who he said he was, he was also unsuitable for her and her family would never accept him and what does she do? she says that what she feels for him is true and everlasting regardless of what her family thinks. But then she goes and seeks him out when he d [...]

    5. I would recommend reading the 4th book in this series (Love According to Lily) before reading this one. It gives some great perspective into the dynamics of the whole "everybody vs Magnus" theme. Although Portrait of a Lover is much more interesting.I bought this book on the Kindle app immediately after finishing Love According to Lily. I HAD to find out what the deal was with Annabelle and Magnus. I could not put this book down! I liked how we found out exactly how Annabelle and Magnus met, and [...]

    6. Slightly boring. Slightly tedious. Still it was a very good plot, though I liked the turn the story took at the end, and his reservations weret really dressed by Annabelle. There is alot of tension in the beginning and I loved the tortured hero in this case though you can really say he was more male romantic lead I guess. I didnt really like anabelle though I coul understand her, and I did shed a tear or two.

    7. I was disappointed in this book. I read MacLean's Love According to Lily and was expecting to be blown away by this one also. I wasn't. It was an enjoyable read, but there was nothing that took me by surprise, nothing that made me think of the book after I put it down.

    8. Thirteen year period was a ridiculously long separation after which the hero and heroine were still ridiculously passionate toward each other. The heroine did not grow up at all regardless of the long period and whatever she claimed she was.

    9. my favourite of the series. they actually know each other. They have a complicated and bitter past. that was sad and really beautiful too!

    10. Hard to get into. Skipped the flashbacks. I did finish but honestly it was blah. I didn't dislike it but I didn't like it either. Magnus at the end though, I really enjoyed him.
